Almost Kind of a Replica

I get so much spam that I couldn’t even dream of not using a service to filter it. I use Spam Arrest, which is quite good and always getting better. Most of the spam I get is so bad, so — really — disgusting, that I am reluctant to scan the “unverified” emails, whose titles alone are overwhelmingly obscene. But, alas, sometimes it’s necessary.

Here’s a keeper. Like you, a large percentage of the spam I get is for “replica watches.” Counterfeits, that is. I used to do a lot of work suing these guys, but I suppose that irony is lost on the bots that sound out these emails.

But this one is a keeper. The reference line reads: Re: Injoy [sic] your Cartier that looks 98% REAL!

Looks 98% real! Interesting defense. “Judge, how can they be counterfeit? We stopped at 98% verisimilitude just to make sure no one was confused!”
